New York Mets San Francisco Giants Ticket
On September 1, 1964, pitcher Masanori Murakami became the first Japanese player in U.S. major league history. Murakami pitched a scoreless eighth inning for the San Francisco Giants in a 4-1 loss to the New York Mets in front of 39,379 fans at Shea Stadium.
"The Jackie Robinson of Japanese Baseball", Murakami paved the way for Asian-born players in the majors, opening the door for the likes of Hideo Nomo, Ichiro, Matsui, and Shohei Ohtani
